At Alta Pediatrics you are not just another number. We value each patient as a unique individual and a member of our community. Your therapist knows you and your child's name, ask for updates on what you are observing, and provides updates on what they are observing during the session.
Play is at the center of our sessions and your child will improve over time through play-based therapy. Whether that is in the sensory gym, running through an obstacle course, playing games, or working on their fine-motor skills what feels like play is your child developing skills and enhancing their abilities.
All therapists are trained and experienced in their specific field (occupational and speech therapy) and have specific experience with a pediatric population. Therapists have graduate level degrees, participate in research projects, and attend continuing education to ensure they stay up-to-date on the latest and most effective evaluation and treatment techniques.
We believe communication and collaboration are key. We work with you as the primary caregiver to provide clear updates on progress and goals each week after the session ends. In addition, we can communicate with other stakeholders that are providing care to your child. By coordinating with speech therapists, school staff, ABA, and other specialists we ensure that there is a holistic view of the care your child is receiving.
From 3-5, children are developing in so many ways. From motor skills to cognition, to language…the preschool age is a time of massive changes. The years between toddler hood and kindergarten are a time for building confidence while learning how to become more independent at home, school, and the community. The neurological foundations for learning are being set up during this important window of brain development and growth during the preschool years.
For children who need some help getting ready for kindergarten, occupational therapy lends a unique, developmental perspective to help build specific sensory motor skills that will help set kids up for success in the classroom. Occupational therapists help children learn how to play with confidence, while teaching important kindergarten readiness skills.
